Default Twenty Eleven or Two Thousand Eleven?

Which are you going to use?

I think Twenty Eleven rolls of the tongue easier. Though last year was Two Thousand Ten.

You can tell I don't have too much to worry about today

What's wrong, did the golf course close?

Happy New Year!!

Twenty Eleven just doesn't sound right to me after the last eleven years of saying two thousand something!

From what I've "heard", the official pronunciation (on TV, etc.) is twenty eleven. I prefer two thousand eleven. I think it doesn't matter much; we'll all understand the year being referenced .

I would say two thousand 11 also.
I'm ready for all of the holiday celebrating to be over and done with. I need some routine back in my life.

The trick is to slur through it...

"twenny-leven"

This is a trick I learned during a stay in Atlanta where they call a local TV station the "dubba dubba dubb-ya B" (WWWB)

So, I started calling the World Wide Web the "dubba dubba dubba".

I still haven't figured out why that last trend I started didn't go global. Maybe because no one says "World Wide Web" anymore.

Same with me. I did twenty-ten last years knowing it would be twenty-eleven and then twenty-something the following years for the rest of my life.

I wasn't born in one thousand nine hundred and fifty one. I was born in nineteen fifty-one. I think people will get with the program, at least by 2020.

It Texas it's: dubya (just like the President) for all three. dubya-dubya-dubya. Certainly NOT double-u. But I think it's that way a lot of places.

twenny-leven is good here too.
